1/400 Summer Season Model Airport
 
Since last winter I have been working on this new airport. The idea was to have it completed before or at the latest the start of the summer season. Of course, this did not happen. I also worked on schedules, looking at FR24 and other sources to help me better showcase the models on the airport. This will give a greater idea of operations throughout each update. Each update will be based on a specific hour of the day.

All current updates will be based on Monday. The first during the period between 0800-0900. Some schedules are operational during the night... which without actual airport lighting installed is almost impossible to photograph. I have no intention of installing LED lights but I will attempt some kind of method to try and illuminate some aspects of the airport. This will be a trial and error procedure. For the most part, all photo's will be during daylight hours hence why I have started at 0800.

Here is the first update... some will be busier than others. Some models will only feature taxiing past because I want to give an idea of the scale of the airport as if it was real. Rather than using all stands visible and making it look overcrowded.

Clean setup, overall well done. What did you use to make the cones. Adds a nice little touch of realism.

Nice airport and nice detail to lines.. Like the cargo area and the A220 taxiing..

Airport threads are always very interesting because of the variety in traffic at each scale model aircraft and your airport is wonderfully interesting...that Virgin Queen looks resplendent at that Gate!!!

I love the cargo area but the entire layout looks beautiful and full of potential.
Great job with the apron marks and with the beautiful runway.

Thank you. They were made by someone else. Just small pieces of plastic it seems. Very delicate little things.

Very nice layout! I really enjoy how you have incorporated plenty of taxiways along with a portion of runway! Everything looks very clean and your grass looks very realistic. Looking forward to more!

Nice diorama you have here Adam! I appreciate that I missed your first update, but it's great to see a new project from you and hopefully this latest diorama will be here to stay! You have all aspects covered with an interesting mix of narrowbody and widebody services, plus a small cargo section making for a well-rounded overall diorama. My favourite photo from this update has to be the one with all three of your Virgin Atlantic B747-400's together!

Great work and thanks for posting your updates once again!

Lovely, very nice! My favorite pics are definitely the ones with the Virgin Jumbos! :tt1:
Interesting to see how one model is kinda beige (Etihad feelings!), while the other one is more silver.

Always excited to see more pics! I really like your terminal. While it is not over the top on design it is very crisp and clean and i think the size and shape of it is just right as it brings the layout together.

Thank you. I am glad it was worth the wait. I try to fit updates around work and how many posts I make on my Instagram/Facebook pages before posting here as this is a complete round up post.

Another very nice update Adam - as many others have already mentioned, the final overview photo is definitely a highlight! My favourite model on display this time is actually the Lufthansa A330 - I personally really like their refreshed livery. I'm still waiting for Gemini Jets to release an A350-900 and B747-8/I in these colours so that I can update my fleet..!

Makes a change alongside the non winglet G-LSAA from both GJ and NG Models. I do hope to see more Jet2 757s but, hopefully not LSAB :envy:

Thank you Cal. I do like overseeing my airport myself even when I'm not positioning or taking photo of models. Just gives the feeling of a job well done. Lufthansa also operate the B747-400 and A340-600 here. While KLM operate A330s and B747-400. Too nice not to feature them.

Time for another update... we are still focused on the schedules for Monday. I think Monday will come to end soon (maybe one or two more updates) but moving into Tuesday and so on may feature later schedules when British Summer Time kicks in and the evenings become lighter so we can experience the later arrivals. I will notify you when Tuesday schedules begin.

Very cool to see the Jet2/AirTanker A330-200 as a model, wasn't aware this one had been produced (though 1:400 isn't my expertise). The other models look great too; you're displaying a wide variety of European models both big and small!

Very cool models and pictures! I like the last pic, showing the DHL 757 and Southern Air 777F at the cargo terminal :cool:
Also nice to see the KLM A330 going to my city! I even have a pic of AOM here :tt2:

Another brilliant update from you. Like the other's i like the Jet2 330 and the Cargo ramp looks great. When i see 1/400 looking well i always think about changing to that scale.

There is a great mix of traffic here, a diverse selection of planes and an interesting story to go along with the pictures. Your photography is as sharp and crisp as can be--it is a pleasure to view this thread!

Sharp and well done photos, a great variety of traffic. In my opinion the KLM A330 new livery and the TUI Airways B757-200WL are the most beautiful models, but all the airplanes landing7taking off at this airport are amazing.

Thank you Charter. The revised KLM livery is rather stylish and I always think the TUI red matches well with the blue/white livery.

Some nice overviews of the early morning traffic Adam - it looks like the first departures of the day are well underway in the first scene. That DHL B767 is also a wonderful model - I believe it's also quite a rare one too.

- Cal.

Lovely! Always so cool to see dioramas which include the terminal and the runway aswell. Plenty of action to show. The overview pic is so cool. I love busy terminals! :envy:

mike21 04-11-2020 03:42 AM

Super update Adam. The overview is great and looks like many British airports with the scale of traffic. Again love ur cargo ramp and the two DHL's parked up.
